Prepare the Frying Pan:
- Place a small nonstick frying pan over medium heat.
Shaping the Cheese Shells:
- Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese into the hot pan, forming a circular shape.
- Cook the cheese until the edges start to turn golden brown and the center is bubbling.
Using the Wooden Spoon:
- While the cheese is still hot, carefully lift it with a spatula and drape it over a wooden spoon placed across a bowl. This will give it the classic taco shell shape as it cools.
Repeat for Additional Shells:
- Repeat the process to make as many cheese shells as needed for your tacos. It’s best to cook them one at a time to ensure they cook evenly.
Let Them Cool:
- Allow the cheese shells to cool and harden for a few minutes on the wooden spoon. This step is crucial to achieving a crispy taco shell texture.
Prepare Taco Fillings:
- While the cheese shells are cooling, prepare your choice of taco fillings. Cook ground beef, chicken, or your preferred protein, and chop or shred your vegetables.
Assemble the Tacos:
- Carefully remove the cheese shells from the wooden spoon once they are firm enough.
- Fill each cheese shell with your desired taco fillings.
Serve and Enjoy:
- Serve your keto cheese shell tacos immediately. You can garnish them with additional toppings like avocado slices, sour cream, or hot sauce.
